Freezer Friendly: Double Chocolate Banana Muffins

Freezer Friendly: Double Chocolate Banana Muffins

Looking for what to do with those ripe bananas you’ve got sitting around? How about these Double Chocolate Banana Muffins? I think they’re the perfect treat that I can keep in my freezer for super busy mornings when we’re rushing out the door!

Be sure to use over ripe bananas to make this recipe. Over ripe bananas are sweeter and their banana flavour is much more intense. They’re also so much easier to mash when they’re over ripe.

These Double Chocolate Banana Muffins are already in single-serving portions, which makes them really great for freezing and thawing as you need them. To freeze the muffins, make sure they’re completely cooled down, then place them in the biggest sandwich / zip top bag you have and place in the freezer. To defrost, you can let them sit for 15-30 minutes at room temperature, or microwave for about 30 seconds until they’re warm and the chocolate chips are all gooey and melted.
